WAA volunteer thanked for 10 years of service

A Wales Air Ambulance volunteer has been commended for a decade of service, helping the charity raise the funds to keep its four helicopters flying.

Martin Whelham has volunteered with the Wales Air Ambulance for over ten years, assisting in the charity’s Tywyn shop to sell pre-loved items to raise donations.

The WAA volunteer was presented an award for his hard work, helping the charity raise the £6.5 million needed every year to fund its operations.

Lynne Garlick, Wales Air Ambulance Fundraising Manager, presented Martin with the award at the charity’s Tywyn shop.

Lynne said: “As a charity we rely on kind support to keep our helicopters flying, through people kindly donating funds and donating their time.

“Martin has volunteers for us for over 10 years, and his outstanding support helps to fund our missions across Wales.

“We would like to say a huge thank you to Martin for his support, which is helping to save lives.”
